Brain pickings

Standard

Had breakfast in the tea room like I do every morning.  It was a younger chemist guy and me, and we ate in silence for a couple minutes.  Excruciatingly normal and mundane.  Then, suddenly, he asks, “Yudai, what are the building blocks of matter?”

We commence to talk not just about atoms but, quarks, sparticles, anti-matter and black holes.

Today’s gonna be a good day!
